My name is Daniel (shutinc)
I'm new to this board, but I have been browsing for a few months and I decided recently to create an account. I'm not going to make this an introduction thread, but I would really like to share my lastest medieval project with you guys. Sorry about my English not being very good as I'm not a native speaker.
Welcome to the lands of Dalheim!
This is where the tax evaders build their houses with large tunnels beneath. They use the tunnels for both storing their valuables and for a place to retreat if war breaks out.
Hope you enjoy!Dalheim Medieval Diorama - Main - Complete

The setting is of a medieval village in the highlands with surrounding mountains.
The original idea was to make a small landscape on 4x 32x32 base plates. In the beginning I was only focusing on the landscape itself, but after a while I decided to make a small house on the top of the first module. I was unsure if I was to make a japanese or medieval styled house, but after getting more and more done I decided to go with a medieval theme.
Just when I thought I was finished I realised that it looked a bit empty and unfinished with just the first module by itself. I then started on the second module which I have also used 4x 32x32 baseplates. In the beginning I had planned a watermill, but I was too inspired by the "Mill Village Raid" [7189 ] so I decided on to go with a windmill instead. The windmill is also motorized and geared down to make a nice and slow spinning effect.
The total length is 120 studs, 64 studs deep and around 40 studs tall on the highest point. This build has taken almost 4 months to make and there is used about 20.000 parts and bits.
